Does Lactose-Free Milk Keep Your Teeth Strong?


Posted on 3/20/2017 by Dr. Call

Drinking lactose-free milk is something many people around the world do on a daily basis. They bypass their love of milk and distain of lactose intolerance symptoms by drinking milk that doesn't have any lactose in it.

If you fall into this population, getting enough calcium may be a concern of yours. Lucky for you, lactose-free milk is only lacking in one major ingredient, the lactose.

Eating a Balanced Diet Helps Keep Your Teeth Strongest


Lactose-free milk allows you to drink milk without the problematic symptoms that come from lactose intolerance. However, it should only be one part of your healthy diet. You want to eat foods and drink beverages that provide what your body needs to stay healthy. This includes drinking tap water for the fluoride, eating lots of lean meats and produce, and making sure that all of your nutrients get balanced out.

Calcium is not the only thing that helps to keep your teeth strong. They need proper care, checkups by your dentist, and a balanced nutritional influx with each meal.

You need to think about your entire body when you eat, not just your stomach or your overall health. Your teeth need nutritious foods to come in that you are going to chew up, as they don't get as much when your only nutrition comes through things like vitamins.

If you are lactose intolerant, make sure your dentist is aware of this. Most people who suffer from this ailment end up having to decline dairy foods when out or eating somewhere other than at home.

This can make it to where your teeth are not always getting what they need. It is important that your dentist check up on this regularly, to make sure your teeth are able to remain healthy despite your intolerance.

Please contact our office if you have any questions about lactose-free milk's effects on your oral health.

Century Dental Creating the Smiles You Dream of!


Welcome to Century Dental, where we make your beautiful smile our business! Dr. Densley and Dr. Call have teamed up to create the driving force in the dental industry of the Pacific Northwest. We have put together a team of highly skilled, professional staff.

Hillsboro Family Dentist


We take great pride in creating a comfortable and friendly environment where our patients can have a positive dental experience. Located in Hillsboro, our office is easily accessible as it is right off of Oregon Route 8. We have gone to great lengths to make sure our office is both state-of-the-art and also comfortable and inviting.

Services Offered


Preventive Dentistry

We are passionate about preventing problems before they start. We do so by educating our patients about what positive dental habits they can be forming and having our patients visit us twice a year for exams and cleanings.

Restorative Dentistry

We understand that often, due to circumstances outside of your control, your mouth may need restorative actions taken. That’s why we offer a bevy of restorative procedures to bring your smile back to it’s original luster.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Frequently we hear that the procedures that make the biggest difference in our patient’s smiles are cosmetic in nature. Whitening, veneers and Invisalign® are just a few of the cosmetic procedure we offer!

IV Sedation

For those patients that need more than just oral sedation we offer what is often called “sleep sedation”. If anxiety is an issue or if the procedure calls for it we can easily place you under full anesthesia to ensure that you rest peacefully through the whole thing.

Dental Implants

If you have lost a tooth or are looking at tooth removal as an option, dental implants are the most highly recommended form of replacement for teeth. Dental implants involve inserting a titanium post into your jaw which will fuse with your bone structure. The post will be topped with a crown made specifically to fit your bite. The result is a form of tooth replacement that looks and acts exactly as your real tooth would. It even prevents bone loss, which is a common side effect of tooth loss.

Dental Technology


We are happy to use a great variety of cutting edge technology in our practice. Digital X-rays are one of our staples in dental tech. Standard X-rays can take time to view and process but with the advent of digital X-rays we can view the inner workings of your mouth almost instantly. We are also able to take higher quality X-rays that allow us to detect things like tooth decay within the tooth, cysts, tumors, and impacted teeth. Further, the radiation you receive from a digital X-ray device is about 1/5th that of a standard X-ray.

We also offer intraoral cameras and ultrasonic scalers. The intraoral cameras aid us in detecting any issues within your mouth that may need further dental attention. Ultrasonic scalers are by far the most effective method for removing built up plaque and tartar that has accumulated on teeth.
